Types of Dental Implants

There are many types of dental implant treatment available, giving you more options to receive the smile of your dreams. During the consultation, your oral surgeon will walk you through your treatment options and help determine the right type of implant for your needs.

  • Single Dental Implants. We can use one dental implant to replace a missing or failing tooth anywhere in the mouth.
  • Same-Day Dental Implants. After extracting a tooth, your surgeon can immediately place a dental implant at the same appointment.
  • Multiple Tooth Replacement. An implant-supported bridge can replace multiple teeth next to each other in the dental arch.
  • Full-Arch Restoration. Using multiple implants, we can place a fixed prosthesis that restores your entire smile and eliminates the need for removable dentures.
  • Overdentures. Overdentures are removable dentures that fasten to implants, restoring appearance and stability to your smile without the need for dental adhesives.
  • Zygomatic Implants. Zygomatic dental implants are inserted into the cheek bone and are ideal for patients looking to restore teeth in the upper jaw, but who lack sufficient jaw bone.

Dental Implant Surgery: What to Expect

During your first visit, we will take 3D scans of your mouth and map out the details of your implant placement. There are many anesthetic options available, and we will help choose the right option based on your level of anxiety, budget, and complexity of your surgery.

On the day of your surgery, we will administer the selected form of anesthesia. Many patients undergo IV anesthesia and local anesthesia. IV anesthesia will put you in a sleep-like state, and you will be able to answer questions, but will not feel any pain.

Once you are comfortable, your surgeon will make a small incision in the gum tissue and insert the implant post into the jaw bone. Sutures are placed as needed, and your prearranged driver will take you home.

The healing process can take several months. Once healed, you will return to our office and the abutment will be attached to the implant. We will provide a temporary crown to wear over the implant and abutment while it heals. After the soft tissues have healed and your final crown is ready, your dentist will attach the crown.

Types of Anesthesia

We offer a variety of anesthesia choices to ensure a comfortable oral surgery experience.

Cost of Dental Implants

Choosing dental implants to restore your smile is an investment in your health, confidence, and comfort. The cost of dental implants varies for each patient. We take several factors into consideration when determining the cost of implant treatment, including:

  • Dental/medical insurance
  • If tooth extraction or bone grafting are necessary
  • Choice of anesthesia
  • Complexity of the surgical procedure

Our team will go over these factors with you and provide you with a cost estimate for your dental implants upfront. Innovative Oral Surgery & Dental Implants accepts many payment methods and there are financing options available to help you finance your dental implant treatment. Learn more about payments, insurance, and financing at our practice.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

A good candidate for dental implants is someone in general good health who has sufficient jaw bone to support the implants. Periodontal disease or gum disease must be treated before receiving implants, because healthy gums are essential to a healthy implant. With bone grafting treatments, we can restore lost bone and help more patients who have experienced bone loss qualify for implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are designed to last for the rest of your life. The post fuses to the jaw bone and as long as you take good care of your implant, it will serve you for many years. To maintain good oral hygiene, simply brush and floss it along with your other teeth twice daily.

Do dental implants hurt?

By using anesthesia and sedation, we can ensure your comfort during oral surgery. You can expect some level of discomfort following any type of procedure, but this post-surgical pain or swelling will subside quickly. Your implants will not cause pain or discomfort after they have healed.

Who places dental implants, dentists or oral surgeons?

Oral surgeons place dental implants because this procedure often involves oral surgery and anesthesia or sedation. General dentists can administer local anesthesia and perform some surgery, such as simple tooth extractions, but oral surgeons are specially trained to place dental implants and safely administer all forms of anesthesia.

What happens if you don’t replace a missing tooth?

Missing teeth can lead to jaw bone loss and gum recession. Nearby teeth can shift into the open gap, which can result in bite misalignment and misalignment. As the jaw bone deteriorates, it can cause facial features to sag, resulting in an older-looking appearance. Severe jaw bone loss may require extensive and costly repairs, which can be avoided by replacing missing teeth with implants early.
